We had a relatively early flight out of Gatwick after a vacation in the UK, and booked a night at Castle Lodge hoping it would make things easier. Having had a disastrous stay at a B & B in the Cotswolds the previous night, we felt rather nervous, but everything went off without a hitch, and we were so impressed with the professionalism and impeccable service offered. Had we known, we would have stayed 2 nights and avoided the previous night's debacle!
We had a car to return to the airport as we arrived, so once we had done so we rang Castle Lodge. We were given clear directions as to where to wait for pick-up, and they arrived within a few minutes. It is only about 10 minutes' drive from the airport to the guesthouse, and we were quickly installed in a family room. The decor is not up-to-date, but who cares, when you have great service and everything you need to hand - two comfortable beds, tv, wifi, a clean bathroom with supplies for each guest and good water pressure, and a handbook to the town which detailed some interesting walks and listed local restaurants and pubs. They even loaned us a luggage scale to assist with our packing.
We passed a pleasant afternoon poking around the shops in Horley and had an excellent dinner at one of the recommended nearby restaurants, Il Sorriso. In the morning, a good self-serve breakfast was available across the hall, and a staff member was waiting to drive us to the airport in plenty of time for our flight. We would definitely stay again. Highly recommended.
